Professor Schuck Contributes Chapter to Babe Ruth Book

Professor Ray Schuck contributed a chapter to a new compilation entitled Babe Ruth at 100, published by AMS Press, Inc. The chapters are based on papers presented at a conference in 1995, held at Hofstra University. Schuck's chapter “When the Broadway Limited Stopped in Lima: An Ohio Town Embraces the Babe” deals with games that Ruth and other all stars played in Lima Ohio as part of barnstorming tours. Schuck's son, also Raymond, a frequent contributor to the Western Civilization Speaker Series also contributed a chapter entitled “Babe’s in Tourland: How Babe Ruth Was Well-Suited for Barnstorming.”
